The China Meteorological Administration has declared red alert for the first time this year because of the strong typhoons, Damrey and Saola, that are currently experiencing.
According to the South China Morning Post, the two typhoons caused strong winds and rain storms resulting in the evacuation of more than 300,000 people.
Typhoon Saola paralyzed the island of Taiwan, causing the closure of schools, shopping centers, offices, financial markets, stopping rail traffic and the cancellation or delay of more than 250 domestic and international flights.
Chinese meteorologists predict that the “Saola” will go to Northwest China at a speed of 15 to 20 mph, while the “Damrey” will move in the same direction at 25 mph. (MZ)
